I found out by attending a lan party (www.westlan.co.uk). We played loads of games throughout the weekend and then on the Saturday evening we all installed Savage, SEPT I think (where the serial number was loads of 0's) and I thought "Wow, this game is really immersive". Then the behes came into our newbie base and I was hooked :)

Savage is great for Lan parties, although at lan parties I recommend SFE as the XR update process normally fails due to no/limited internet.

My brother imported Savage back in 2003 and also allowed me to play it on his PC. Then in April 2005 I found Savage here for Mac http://macgamefiles.com/item/18602/Savage-The-Battle-for-Newerth-Demo/ and instantly bought it as digital download - and started to play more frequently (with sucky 15-25 fps) :)

As i bought my last computer in 2006, the game was distributed along with the graphic card. There was a CD with 3 Games on it - one of those was Savage. So i just installed them all but as i saw how savage is working and how the gameplay "feels" i was hugged by the spirit of savage xD

I heard of it almost literally from a friend. My school was doing LAN parties against the Spokane Campus, and I was like "Savage, what's that?" And because we had a Thursday's class we were kind of shown it, and heck it was awesome. So we went to the LAN party and that's how I first played. I didn't kick ass at the LAN party, but after playing some online games, I did better than most of the others on the last few LAN parties (I'm sure they didn't play as much as I did at that time lol) Now I play for gitts and shiggles as well as killing time at the end of the night.

That was also how I first played sky_hopping. However it's quite unfortunate that the map doesn't work online like it did with the LAN

(The ORIGINAL sky_hopping)
Map Status   deleted
Reason   antigrav no longer working :-/

Not the new one, sky_hopping!

I found Savage while i was looking at a 5 games in one CD and started playing it in an Aussie server. Then moved on to Girls HvH.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I managed to get 6 of my buddies playing Savage, they all loved HvH and they all left after HvH died. Just wanted to mention how welcoming that server was for the new-comers..

I think Ive gotten it trough a PC magazin (PC GAMES) in 2006.

At first I just played Neverwinter Nights on the CD, as there were more Games included, but then I got curious about Savage and installed it.

@Rene: Played on Aussie server at first aswell, afs and h impressed me so freaking much back then  :-D

I guess a lot of german players got it trough that magazine at that time.

Before savage came out I already liked the idea they wanted to implement. There was the HvsH demo, which was rly good. However I didnt have the urge to buy it.
Then some news site posted it became free to play and I started trying it again :)
And now its years later :P

answer:

a. Chuck Norris showed it to me

b. I invented Savage

c. Deadeye once swung his sword so powerfully that it created the second big bang, after the universe started cooling down, I was birthed in the craters of two colliding planets.

d. A local isp had a "games forum" that had free demo's amongst other things, I tried out the hvh demo and was immediately blown away. About two months later I realised I was actually playing against other humans and not just ai, and that I was being kicked because I kept taking the commanders seat and ruining peoples matches. Savage has never been the same since.

Bought it from a PC Game store about 8 years ago, not knowing a thing about the game previously. Played it, loved it, and it became one of my all-time faves!

In 2008 I got bored playing "Enemy Territory" so I googled for some free first person shooters. I ended up scrolling down a list of 30 games and when I saw Savage, I laughed and thought "Wtf? You shoot orcs with crossbows in this game. Is it like Heretic with multiplayer? Have to try this out because it looks so weird!" Finding out Savage was class based similarly to ET got me excited too.

First games were harsh. Aiming was weird and different with each weapon. Beasts instakilled me with claw attacks whenever I got too close to them. I barely maintained 1:1 K/D if I camped with ranged near our base. I also figured there was a shit ton of things to learn before I could understand how the game works.

Those two things combined (constant dying to melee combat and the amount info needed to fully enjoy the game), I quit playing. Soon after I went to army anyways.

In 2009 my service ended and for some masochistic reason I decided to revisit Savage. I'm a pretty competitive person and like to take on challenges so maybe that's why. This time I got more patience to learn the game... and soon I was hooked.

This might be a fun fact about DeMo history that not many know.

I originally found out about the game from a site called gamershell.com at 2003. At the time I was actively trying out all kind of demos and then Savage's demo popped in there. The game featured HvH only gameplay, but at the time it was revolutionary. The full game was out on US, but since I didn't have credit card back then I couldn't purchase it. After a while there was a stable playerbase playing just the demo version of the game and we decided to create a clan, thus DeMo was born. :)
